9780714839899: Doug Aitken (Contemporary Artists (Phaidon))

- American video and installation artist Doug Aitken (b.1968) exploded onto the International art scene with his multi-screen work electric earth at the Venice and Whitney biennials in 1999
- His videos"--dream-like sequences rearrange the linear flow of narrative into a series of unforgettable, disjointed photographic tableaux
- Altken's work creates unexpected yet beautiful imagery that encircles the viewer and creates a suspended, hyper-real portrait of contemporary life

About the Author:

Doug Aitken (b. 1968) has created a body of work that explores the evolving ways people experience memory and narrative and relate to fast-paced urban environments. During the past decade, the artist has created innovative contemporary video art by fracturing the narrative structures of his films across multi-screen environments. His work has been exhibited in museums around the world, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York (which commissioned a large-scale outdoor video installation--the first of its kind at the venerable institution), and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. In 1999 he was awarded the International Prize at the Venice Biennale, and in 2000 he won the Aldrich Award.

Review:

On the Contemporary Artists Series "The boldest, best executed, and most far-reaching publishing project devoted to contemporary art. These books will revolutionize the way contemporary art is presented and written about."-Artforum "The combination of intelligent analysis, personal insight, useful facts and plentiful pictures is a superb format invaluable for specialists but also interesting for casual readers, it makes these books a must for the library of anyone who cares about contemporary art."-Time Out "A unique series of informative monographs on individual artists."-The Sunday Times "Gives the reader the impression of a personal encounter with the artists. Apart from the writing which is lucid and illuminating, it is undoubtedly the wealth of lavish illustrations which makes looking at these books a satisfying entertainment."-The Art Book

Descrizione libro Phaidon Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. American video and installation artist Doug Aitken (b.1968) exploded onto the international art scene with his multi-screen work electric earth, which captivated audiences at the Venice and Whitney biennales in 1999. This work focused on the bizarre nocturnal experiences of a young man exploring the edges of Los Angeles, presenting dream-like sequences that rearrange the linear flow of narrative into a series of unforgettable, disjointed photographic tableaux. Like much of his work, it contrasts the high-tech speed of contemporary daily life with the monotony of the urban landscape. In other works he has explored the eerie, desterted atmosphere of Jonestown, Guyana, the site of the notorious mass suicide of religious cultists (monsoon, 1997); a remote diamond-mining region of Namibia, closed to outsiders since 1908 (diamond sea, 1997); and the collective dreams of India s Bollywood film industry (into the sun, 1999). Portraying some of contemporary art s most beautiful imagery, Aitken s installations encircle the viewer, creating a suspended, hyperreal portrait of contemporary life.In the survey, curator and critic Daniel Birnbaum sets Aitken s art within the context of contemporary philosophy and the work of other recent artists who have explored expanded notions of time and space. In the Interview, Frieze publisher and critic Amanda Sharp discusses the artist s working methods, while in the Focus section critic Jorg Heiser looks at Aitken s i am in you (2000), a five-screen work centring on the imaginative experiences of a young girl. For his Artist s Choice Aitken has selected a short story by Jorge Luis Borges, whose description of altered realities through the distortions of mirrors and memory echoes the artist s own interests. Artist s Writings include Aitken s retelling of an unusual story he once heard from strangers, which served as the basis for subsequent video work. Codice libro della libreria AA99780714839899
